InterAction’s Standards define the financial, operational and ethical code of conduct for InterAction and its member agencies. These self-applied, high and objective standards set InterAction members apart from many other charitable organizations. Indeed, in various aspects, the InterAction Standards exceed the prevailing standards of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance (WGA). At the end of every other year, each InterAction member is asked to review the Standards and recertify compliance.
Intended to ensure and strengthen public confidence in the integrity, quality and effectiveness of member organizations and their programs, the standards were created when the overseas work of NGOs was dramatically increasing in scope and significance.
